to help libyans. gregg: greg palkot joins me by telephone in tripoli. we understand, greg, the fbi is still there on the ground. what is the latest you're hearing? >> reporter: that's right, gregg. we spoke with an official that fbi agent remain in tripoli. we don't have any confirmation that they have yet to reach the scene of the killing that killed ambassador stevens and others in ben dwauz gazi. it is not especially safe. but there are worry that is the crime scene 10 days later could be contaminated. a marine anti-terror fast response team remains in tripoli as well. the embassy is well-guarded amid other questions being raised the night of the killing u.s. military teams were not sent in fast enough and questions about inadequate security at the consulate and maybe not enough attention paid to other attacks happening in benghazi over the past couple months. we've been hearing in our time on the ground here, at least to some degree, the militants, militia very much in charge in benghazi. gregg? gregg: we're hearing there is a protest and counter protest in libya. what can you
have any information as to whether or not the fbi is on the ground in benghazi, libya, going through the consulate or not? >> it is not clear they're on the ground today, i don't know the answer to that. i can tell you a week after the incident they were not on the ground in benghazi. they were in neighboring tripoli. they were not where the crime scene was. that is deeply troubling fact. how can they not investigate the incident if they're not occurring the crime scene. that usually has to occur right after the event. i would hope they're there now. bill: what does that suggest if they are not? >> i don't know how you can do a full investigation if you can't be there to secure evidence at the scene and to be right where the event occurred to ask questions. my background as a prosecutor and i can tell you the first thing that you need to do is right at the beginning of the event you have to get the accounts, you've got to make sure the evidence is secure. the fact they haven't been there is deeply troubling. bill: could it be it is still not safe? >> well it could be that that sugges
of treating it like it's a "law & order" issue, rather than a war on terrorism. they have sent the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point becau

that an investigation is underway. >> the libyans are leading an investigation. we have our own f.b.i. investigation, we also have close f.b.i. and libyan cooperation as we both pursue these, but i'm not going to get into the back and forth of who is arrested, what we think, what we know about any of this. >> reporter: meanwhile reaction to this anti-is film is complicating the end game in afghanistan with attacks against nato troops there being blamed on the film. u.s. officials have suspended joint operations withafter beg with afghan prop patrols and that complicates with call by 2018. martha: it's difficult to get a handle on exactly what took place. a former c.i.a. covert operations officer joins us with his analysis with the intel skwhrepbs gatherethe inch with the intelligence gathered so far. bill: they told fox's sean hannity that the white house is hiding from reality. >> they don't want to admit it's a terrorist attack, his policies have failed. >> they he think this is weaker and just this afternoon we hear that the doj is now going to be investigating this incident. sean, these guys are --
. martha: could be. how does all this impact the fbi investigation going on there into the death of ambassador stevens and three other americans? >> reporter: martha, the word we're getting on the ground from benghazi it is calm. authorities are more in control. that is a good thing. the word also been getting on the ground here that the fb i-team sent to this country to investigate the crime has been hampered, maybe even blocked from the benghazi situation and the crime scene there. so that could help. overall, frankly also the public is going after the very militant groups that a lot of people suspect had a real hand in the killing of ambassador stevens and the other americans. that might be a good thing. as for the libyan authorities we're not exactly sure how fast that investigation is going forward. we met with one official today. he claims to me that they have 25 suspects in custody. but frankly in the past week or so we have heard one number, number two, number three numbers for arrests and suspects. one other concern about the crackdown, martha, the militants are being fo
there is ongoing investigation and more details will come out after it wraps up. we learned yesterday not one fbi agent has stepped foot in fwauz gauze in the 17 days since the attack because things are too dangerous. u.s. officials internally labeled the deadly raid on the consulate within a day so they could unlook military force it fight the terrorists. administration is stalled and defending their decision to initially deny what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack with press secretary jay carney saying yesterday every step of the way the information that we have provided to you and the general public about the attack in benghazi has been based on the best intelligence we've had and the assessments of our intelligence community. carney also told reporters even though the president still not publicly called this a terrorist attack, since he is are obama's spokesman, and he gave it that label we should all know what the commander-in-chief thinks it was. bill: so now we're hearing from democrats who demand answers from the administration. what are they saying, peter? >> reporter: 10 democ
